Sauced is one of my favorite BBQ restaurants. My husband loves the ribs. I LOVE the loaded sweet potato with jackfruit. Delicious!! And their sides - you can’t go wrong with any of them! All are delicious!! Service is always mediocre and our food was warm not hot.

The sliced brisket is the best meat. And the waffle-cut fries are better with house rub.

The food was really good, we will definitely return. Had the burnt ends, mac n cheese and sweet potato casserole. The server was new and being trained. While she was personable, she was fairly inattentive. Last, we had to eat outside, and while there was a heater, it was pretty chilly.

We enjoyed everything we ate from the bumpkins (appetizer) to the brisket burnt ends. Large servings.

First time I had been here since dining opened up again. The prices seemed higher than I remember and my portion of brisket was a joke not enough to make a sandwich. At that price point I expected more.

We haven’t been since Covid started and we were disappointed in the food. Meat on burger was over cooked, fries over seasoned, sauce too spicy. Not the Sauced we remember.

I'm a huge fan of south Texas barbecue. The ribs, burnt end brisket and chicken were great. I was disappointed that they were out of burn end pork belly. Guess I'll just have to go back

The hostess was pretty scattered. She was away from the stand outside in the cold (not sure why they don't move it back in, it's so far for her) and she got pulled aside from setting up our table by the two groups behind us who were impatient as she was walking back and interrupted her walk. She continued to help them and get them seated before she came back to get us for the table we had checked in for already.

The server more than made up for it though - she was fantastic! She checked in with us regularly and was super personable, making us feel so welcome back to in-house dining.

Great time getting out. Food was good as always. Love the ambiance!
Service was slow all night which was surprising because it was not extremely busy. We had 3 different people waiting on us, so we never really knew who was our main person.
One person took, appetizer order, one took, main dish, and someone else delivered food.
Had to ask for silverware. Had to ask for drink refills. Did not clear appetizer dishes off before main food came so there was no place to set dishes down and people ended up stacking plates up for the waiter/waitress. Versus setting plates down in front of the person, we had to handle plates thru different people (not the best COVID protocols) and we were sitting at a table. I get the middle person in the booth side, but the rest of us should have had plates put down in front of us.
Between all of the people, maybe that was the reason for the inconsistent service.
Maybe just an off-night on service.

We went to the Livermore location downtown. Great neighborhood and chose the "sidewalk" outdoor seating. They did the table and tarp vey well, and followed COVID-19 guidelines, etc. to a tee.
Such good food and huge portions. One of the best BBQ joints around. The salad with pulled pork was to die for, especially the bbq ranch dressing and the double burger with pulled pork, a real belly filler, so be VERY hungry when you go. The topper was the Southern peach tea cocktail. So tasty that it just slides down easy. Careful with this one as it could be habit forming!
Definitely going back.

We've been eating here for years. The brisket melt sandwich is always delicious, as are the nachos. The all-star winner is the grits! Everyone we have brought to eat at Sauced has loved them. I brought these grits to my sisterand cousin in Illinois because they love them so much. TSA was stunned!

The service is always great.

I made this dinner arrangement to celebrate a friend's birthday. The four of us had a great experience. The only hiccup was they were out of a beer that he wanted, but no big deal, he ordered another one. They gave us a free dessert to celebrate, so that was nice. :-)

We haven't been to the Livermore location in a couple of months... having gone to the Walnut Creek location the last two times. It seems the service has declined in Livermore. The front hostess was rude, the server brought me cold food, and a guest at the table nearest mine barfed through a large part of the meal.

Service was excellent but the food wasn't anything worth going back for. It wasn't bad, it was just unremarkable. I did just get a burger though so maybe the BBQ is better. I would go again though but order something else.

My date and I sat at clean, roomy 4-top in middle of a tent on a super last minute afternoon reservation (basically walk-in). The table spacing was roomy enough to have a conversation, despite cars blowing by and trucks honking occasionally. We are generally ready to shout through our masks anyway while we wait for the first round, it’s always poppin’ at Sauced.

Dinner was wonderful. Socially distanced and masks. The brisket was to die for. The pulled pork was excellent. Had the cornbread and sweet potatoes for sides. So good.
